Aido Classic Lipstick Shade B Review
How much is the cheapest lipstick you’ve ever come across? In my case, it’s PhP 50. Yes, PhP 50 lang! And the lipstick is the Aido Classic Lipstick. I actually thought that Aido had its own counter so I kept looking for that, and of course I wasn’t able to find it because there isn’t one in our nearby SM. I was surprised though ’cause while I was looking at the products in the Fashion 21 (either that or Careline!) stall, I saw this box of Aido lipsticks at a bottom shelf. Aha!
Aido Classic Lipsticks are very, very simply named—A, B, C, D, E, and so on. I don’t know if the color range covers the whole alphabet, but at the department store I went to, there were less than a dozen colors available, with about half of them being shades of brown. I wasn’t really in the mood then for a brown so I picked shade B, which is pink!
Shade B has a slightly frosty finish. I was a bit hesitant to get it at first because of that, but the color of it won me over. This is a medium fuchsia pink, not too bright and quite wearable. It looks light a soft, pretty fuchsia pink on my lips. I don’t like frosty lipsticks because they seem to emphasize the lines on my lips, but as I’ve mentioned this one is only slightly frosty so it’s not so bad. It brings a mild shine to the lips but nothing over the top. For me this lippie is an appropriate daytime color, but can also be swiped on more heavily for nights out.
I don’t detect any scent or taste to this lipstick when I apply it. This has a creamy, satiny texture that glides easily on the lips. I find that it’s a must to apply lip balm before using the Aido Classic Lipstick because it can bring attention to any flaky spots.
This lipstick has okay lasting power on me. It stays on through glasses of water and coffee, but after a snack sometimes it seems to fade unevenly, with the color faded on some areas and only the fine, frosty shimmer left.
In natural light, no flash
It’s a little drying on me, but it doesn’t leave my lips cracked by the end of the day. I remedy the dry feeling by gently wiping or dabbing off any lipstick residue, applying lip balm, then putting on a fresh coat of the shade B Aido Classic Lipstick.
Aido Classic Lipstick Shade B – What I like about it:
- The color’s not bad! A pretty, wearable, and versatile fuchsia pink.
- It applies smoothly, evenly, and without any major issues.
- I don’t detect any taste or scent to this product.
- Wearable and looks good even though it’s kinda frosty.
- It’s pigmented and not chalky at all. I usually need only one dab-swipe for light color, and a full coat or two for more intense coverage.
- The cap doesn’t come off or break easily.
- It’s cheap!
- It’s available at most department stores.
Aido Classic Lipstick Shade B – What I don’t like about it:
- It doesn’t twist all the way down—there’s some product jutting out at the top that I’ve nicked with the cap.
- It tends to fade unevenly on my lips.
This is really not bad for the price! If you’re under a strict budget but feel the craving for a new lippie, definitely check out Aido lipsticks! Thiamere has also reviewed their Magic Lipstick here.
